Ana seeded 20th for Wimbledon

Ana is seeded No.20 for the 2006 Championships. She is scheduled to face a player seeded between nine and 16 in the third round.

Ana’s seeding is two positions above her world ranking due to the injury-enforced withdrawals of Lindsay Davenport and Mary Pierce.

The All England Club uses a subjective seeding policy and has elevated reigning champion Venus Williams from her world ranking of 12 to a seeding of seventh. However, that is the only change: the 32 seeds otherwise follow the current Sony Ericsson WTA Tour rankings.

The draw takes place on Friday at 11.30am Central European Time.
